western jet liners oh over detroit several years ago. so this has been going on for some time. al-qaeda in north africa tried to take over mali and would have succeeded had it not been for french intervention. >> paul: is mali really a threat to us? >> you could have made the same argument as afghanistan, a remote middle country in the middle of asia but it's a threat that it provides a secure base that al-qaeda can plan and plot. that is the issue. now, the biggest threat increasingly is syria where we have literally thousands of fighters affiliated with a front and other al-qaeda ideologically linked groups that are gaining strength. they are gaining expertise. they are gaining and creating sanctuaries. >> paul: and presumably hard to penetrate? >> they are importing jihadis from europe and going to perpetrate things. >> paul: we were told the syria isn't our fight, it's irrelevant to our security. it's over there, it's the middle east. we need to withdraw from the middle east and pivoted to asia because we have been stirring the hornets nest there? >> we are told what happens i
of change, revving in detroit and super sized shark attack. gentleman rina lewis, let's talk about the job jobs. break them down. >> sluggish at best. 162,000 jobs added. the expectation was 185,000. even whispers of 200,000. so way off. to put it in perspective, at this rate it will take seven more years to make up for the jobs lost in what is now deemed as the great recession. and it gets worse. because even though unemployment is down slightly, it's a bit misleading because participation is down. you've got to remember, every day 10,000 baby boomers retire. what is replacing those jobs, two-thirds of the jobs are part-time largely in the retail sector, which is notorious for low wages. >> a lot of mill lessen kwrals are living at home with their parents. >> a lot of people in the industry are saying selection. these days you can't have a few models you have to have lots of models. there seems to be something about a truck, to borrow a line from a country song. g.m., 16%. ford, 11%. these are sales to consumers, not fleet sales or commercial sales where the margins are lower. >> that is

of michigan and, of course, everybody's aware of the economic pain felt by the city of detroit, so finishing a swim there was also very symbolic. what we really wanted to show, number one, we're selling these bricks to help fund building projects, but there was also a message of hope we wanted to deliver, you know, that we don't have to sink with the weight of our burleds, you know? and if one man can pull a ton of bricks 22 miles, then what are we able to accomplish if we all pull together? i believe we will have the strength to pull ourselves out of this, and that was really the message that we delivered. jenna: it's such a powerful message, and it struck me as i was reading a little bit about you that most of the stories we do about detroit and about michigan are, as you mentioned, you know, they're negative because of what's going on right now with the economy. and you had an interesting interaction with a woman who traveled to see you at the end of this swim, jim. tell our viewers a little bit about that. >> this was the most special moment of the swim for me, you know? in addition to m

who came to detroit in 2009. this is more -- is more general. i think if anything's changed it's that in the aftermath of the attack on our facility in benghazi and the deaths there of four americans and the continuing ha la ba lu from congress about embassy safety, people just want to err on the side of taking extra precautions. they don't have the same kind of specificity here they've had in other threats. what they have is significant personalities being involved in the threat stream and i think that's why they take it seriously. >> we are living in a post-benghazi world and benghazi drives so much of this. >> exactly. so richard haas, talk a little bit about -- what's the president's for closing -- precedence for closing 22 embassies and this al qaeda resurgence. >> let me start with the latter. people are focusing on the u.s. reaction which i think is appropriate. the bigger story this is the new normal. this is now a middle east where you no longer have countries that are essentially controlled by their governments. it's been the case in pakistan for some time, which is w
's public comments. >> that's right. it's simplified by the vice president is detroit was alive and bin laden was dead. they went on to say it was on the heels. this seems to call it into questions. it's not just groups that hit us in benghazi that this administration hasn't really focused on but al qaeda was the one they were focused on. also the progressive line that all we have to do is pull out of iraq, dwachb stan, roll over, play nice doggy and these people won't be as violent against us isn't true. basically we've shifted from offense to defense and this is what happens. >> quickly, what's the significance for you that this includes afghanistan? >> i think it shows central asia continues to be a real hot spot and even though they want the afghan war to be over, we still have to have the ability to act in central asia as long as asia and militants are there. >> thank you so much for your insight. good luck with the book. >> thanks, shannon. >>> peace negotiations continue. hopes are high but the path will not be easy. the defense minister joining us live with his thoughts next. >>
-qaeda not decimated but al-qaeda is very much alive it's actually detroit that is decimated. >> and in last may, he said osama bin laden is dead and most of his top lieutenants. there has been no large scale attacks on the united states and homeland is more secure. in summary, we're safer because of our efforts, but would you say that is not true? >> i think what we've seen from this administration is a willingness to look the other way. we pretend like al-qaeda is on the run. it's not just benghazi that we saw these problems in. mali has been developing as a strong hold for terrorists for quite a long time. the french are the ones who actually had to step up and do something bit. the united states was unwilling. you know it's really bad when the french are leading the charge and the united states is pretending there is no war to fight. >> heather: and this threat is focused on yemen, why? >> that is also a hub right now. there is probably some very real intelligence. we obviously are not privy to that intelligence, but those who are understanding that on daily basis have to make the decisions. i d
qaeda in yemen that has been able to reach out and touch. think of that detroit airliner bombing. >> that terror group has significant capabilities, expertise and resources. 19 of the almost two dozen american diplomatic posts throughout northern africa that were closed sunday will not open for the rest of the week, as we mentioned earlier and prompting officials that the obama administration said was on the run is running right towards us. the newest messages by senior al qaeda members show the urging of an attack may be complete. >> some individuals who are making plan such as we saw before 9/11, whether they are going to be suicide deaths that are used or whether they're planning on vehicle-borne cars, we don't know. >> counterterrorism officials were paying plenty of attention because of a rash of brazen prison breaks in three countries, freeing hundreds of extremists. july 26, nearly 1,200 inmates were set free in benghazi, libya. july 30th, pakistan, taliban gunmen freed 200 inmates. want it just recently we were told that al qaeda was all but left for dead? >> today al qae

. detroit is dead and al qaeda is obviously alive. it's a distinction he wants to make and pretend he's always been making it, but it does shed light on why they so insistent on denying that the benghazi attack was a terror attack by an affiliate of al qaeda, because, remember, the run-up to the election, al qaeda was supposedly dead, and it would have meant admitting that there were al qaeda affiliates even in north africa. this isn't even in yemen that everybody knew about, but even in north africa. capable enough of attacking an embassy, sacking it and killing an ambassador. so a distinction they only used after an election as a way to cover-up the cover-up that happened before the election. >> julie, ed henry asked about benghazi and the president september 12th of last year saying that those responsible will be brought to justice. take a listen to his answer. >> i also said that we'd get bin laden and i didn't get him in 11 months. so we have informed i think the public that there's a sealed indictment. it's sealed for a reason. but we are intend on capturing those who carried ou

"the wall street journal" reports a federal grand jury is looking into whether the company that did the last background check on snowden rushed its review. that company is u.s. investigation services. it's based in virginia. several of its former employees reportedly have been subpoenaed to appear before the grand jury to answer questions. the firm says it is cooperating fully. >>> coming up on "newsroom," baseball star alex rodriguez now says that he will be back with the yankees on monday. >> monday? >> that's what he says. can that really happen
the detroit tigers, and others saying here's what we should add to baseball's arsenal -- the right at the team's discretion to void a long-term contract if a player is found, and after he gets due process and goes through appeals, so it's a fair process, if the player is found to have used peds, the team has the right to void the long-term contract. in the case of ryan braun, for example, he loses $3 million. that's a lot of money. but there's still about $100 million left on the contract. if you put in that clause, that you could void a deal, that's a tremendous disincentive. >> bob costas of nbc sports, thank you so much. what an important time with the suspension of alex rodriguez coming down to tomorrow according to your reporting from nbc sports. bob, thank you as always. >>> andrea mitchell, you're such a big sports fan. my own son said to me if one of his players he really likes a lot is caught up in this, he's going to throw away his jersey. this really matters in terms of the future of the game. >> baseball is america. baseball to me is essential sport. and the fact that it has been s
